With Valentines Day coming up, I wanted to do a post about it.
Valentine’s Day just so happens to be one of my favorite holiday’s of the year!
I have a memory of a Valentine’s Day when I was in elementary school. I walked downstairs and my mom had set a couple of small presents on the table. I was so excited to get cute red & pink heart themed hair ties and the Annie musical CD.
Best. Valentine’s Day. Ever.
Since then, I have loved Valentine’s Day. For me, Valentine’s Day is about self-love. A day where I treat myself!
Whether it’s a small treat like walking down to the bakery and treating myself to a latte and pastry or a more indulgent treat like a spa pedicure, I like to do something that makes me feel good and recognizes that I love the relationship that I have with myself. This day is really the day that I stop putting off something that I have been wanting to do, eat, buy and just do it! So this year, I’m thinking about a pedicure, because seriously…it’s been on my mind for, um, months!
My boyfriend and I don’t make too big of a deal over V-Day. We don’t feel like it’s important to choose one day out of the year to recognize love. Instead, we are constantly doing & showing small gestures of love! We will probably cook a delicious dinner together and maybe share a piece of cake – keeping it casual.
Idea’s on way to treat yourself – soon to come!
